dark was the night

whitneylive

to raise international awareness for HIV/AIDS, the Red Hot Organization has enlisted some of the best names in the independent music world today to partake in a collaboration of epic proportions. Dark Was The Night is 2 cd’s featuring the likes of such bands as Yeasayer, Dirty Projectors, David Byrne, formally of the Talking Heads, Bon Iver, the National, Grizzly Bear (who just so happens to be coming to my school this fall!!!), and some more of my favorites from the archives a few years back including Blonde Redhead and the Books. it’s also available in a 6 part vinyl. nasty. (in a good way of course).

if you havn’t checked out the genius that is DWTN, i’m posting a few of my favorites from both ‘this disk’ (cd #1) and ‘that disk’ (cd #2) for your pleasure and enjoyment.
